Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies – Vegan

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies – Vegan

Prepare to be popular because these bakery shelf-worthy chocolate chip cookies are universally loved by young and old! Both soft and crispy, vanilla scented and packed with chocolate chips – these gorgeous cookies are the definition of I-can’t-believe-they’re-vegan dreaminess! This is a bit of a cheat […]

Very Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes

Very Vanilla Vegan Cupcakes

Cupcakes. The trend that never really fell out of favour. They are everywhere – incredible sky-high swirls in every flavour and colour from pastel to neon, yet the simplest and fairest of them all, fluffy vanilla sponge topped with a slick of creamy vanilla frosting […]

Vegan Welsh Cakes

Vegan Welsh Cakes

Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! (Happy St David’s Day!) I love these traditional little Welsh treats which are synonymous with 1st March and the prospect of spring just around the corner. Despite being sold every day of the year in every bakery in Wales, it’s Welsh law (sort […]

Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

Icelandic ‘Happy Marriage’ Cake | Hjónabandssaela

I’d been itching to try this recipe for ages. Look at the whimsical name! I was instantly intrigued. It’s a bit of a misnomer really though; it isn’t a cake at all, at least not in the traditional sense. It’s actually the perfect cross between […]

Veganising Nigella: The Ginger & Walnut Carrot Cake

Veganising Nigella: The Ginger & Walnut Carrot Cake

Sound the fangirl klaxon: Nigella Lawson is a bit of an idol of mine. I love reading her books and it feels a bit slack simply calling her a food writer – frankly, she’s the doyenne of modern food literature. As a child, my grandparents […]

Chunky Best-Ever Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Chunky Best-Ever Vegan Macaroni Cheese

Macaroni cheese was always one of my favourite dishes when I was vegetarian, and I wasn’t about to give it up when I ditched dairy! I make this quite a lot for my daughter when she has a friend over for tea and I’m always […]

Happy New Year! How’s January going for you so far? (Doesn’t it feel like the longest month EVER?!) I hope 2018 will be a great year for all of us. January has kicked off with a record-breaking number of sign-ups for the annual Veganuary – […]

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

Creamy Coconut Rice Pudding – vegan // slow cooker

It’s nearly Christmas! How’s your December going so far? I know I say every year how much I enjoy the festive season but I really do. Twinkling fairy lights and the smell of cinnamon wafting through the air makes me feels so warm and cosy […]

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Orange Zest Glaze

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Orange Zest Glaze

You know it’s properly Autumn when you start thinking about pumpkins! Most pumpkins bought for Hallowe’en carving purposes are definitely not worth the effort of cooking (they are grown for size, not taste – although to be fair, pumpkin flesh tastes of virtually nothing anyway; […]

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Instant Vegan Condensed Milk // Vegan Basics

Sweetened condensed milk is one of those naff ingredients that is actually pretty handy to have in the cupboard as the key ingredient for all kinds of tooth-rotting deliciousness such as caramel, no-churn ice cream, banoffee pie and fudge. Recipes like salted caramel millionaires – definitely one of […]

Kid-Friendly Katsu Curry (Vegan)

Kid-Friendly Katsu Curry (Vegan)

I only just recently found out about katsu curry. It’s a Japanese curry which is essentially a smooth mild sauce (think chip shop curry sauce, guys – sorry Japan) poured over breaded chicken, veggies and rice. I saw it mentioned again and again when I […]

Apple, Maple + Pecan Cake

Apple, Maple + Pecan Cake

I can’t believe how fast summer has gone. My baby starts back at school tomorrow – and to think at the beginning of the holidays I was a bit concerned about how I would keep her entertained for almost eight weeks! But I needn’t have […]
